This site is dedicated to the work founded by Carl Gustav Jung.

The intention of the website is to provide a bridge between the anglophone and francophone Jungian communities in the world.

JPS contains part of the content of Espace Francophone Jungien that has been translated into English.

In addition, it contains anglophone articles, whose French translations have been published on the Francophone mother site.

The Marie-Louise von Franz tower in Bollingen

The Marie-Louise von Franz tower is set against the edge of a wood, at about 2 km from the village centre, in the direction of Wagen.

With its characteristic blue/gray and yellow shutters the square tower is nestled in a sanctuary of greenery.


M.L. von Franz: « I had a great need for nature, and great love of nature as well. I always envied Jung for his Bollingen [Tower]. I had the chance to find a plot there. I didn’t have the courage to build a tower, because that seemed too much like an imitation, but Jung said: « You cannot build a house here, you must build a tower! » As he wanted me to do it, I built a tower as well. I went to Bollingen, and there I would retreat to write, to be alone, and to avoid the telephone and people. That’s the mission of an introverted person! »

Marie Louise von Franz, loosely translated from « Femmes autour de Jung » by Nadia Neri, p. 132.
